3 Security is a basic need. Today, perhaps more than ever before, security is one of our most fundamental needs. People wish to protect the things closest to their hearts: things which are important to them or which they do not wish to lose or do without. Some of these things take absolute priority: our own lives, for instance, and those of our nearest and dearest, or our personal possessions. But there is also our place of work, our colleagues and the companies we work for: all these too require protection. Work processes in particular are susceptible to outside influences: factors that can negatively influence productivity and, by extension, business results. Certain intangible values, of course, also require protection: the freedom to think, say and act as we choose, for instance. The laws by which we abide. The culture we live in and of which we are an integral part. Or such personal things as the feeling of being safe and secure. Security is a challenge. But security is not something we can take for granted. The press, radio and TV provide daily reminders that nothing is more fragile than our security. The risks and dangers that surround us increase and change constantly. All this calls for innovative concepts geared precisely to the various needs of the buildings, property, people and working processes at risk. It is not simply a question of our own homes or place of work but of all the buildings we regularly frequent whether we are shopping, enjoying our leisure time or on vacation. Siemens is a professional partner. To feel genuinely secure, you need a professional partner who knows how rapidly sources of danger and risk potential can change. Building Technologies from Siemens is a partner with years of experience, whose extensive knowhow and innovative solutions have established its reputation for reliability. Our all-round security solutions are designed to dovetail with each other and guaranteed to make you feel secure in your surroundings, whether they happen to be static, like buildings or working environments, or mobile, such as ship containers or even luxury vehicles.

5 Security solutions are individual. Your expectations of a solution depend on the location of your organization, the purposes for which the building is used and the business processes that go on inside it. A security concept for a pharmaceutical company, for instance, will differ significantly from the one needed by a public administration block. The security solution required for an IT company cannot be compared with the one required for an airport. Siemens creates solutions for specific industries and leaves absolutely nothing to chance. Analysis and integration into the IT infrastructure. Together with the clients we draw up a risk analysis that covers every aspect of their business processes. After this, we define a security policy with basic objectives, strategies and responsibilities. Finally, we work out a framework concept and guidelines based on international safety and security standards. At the same time, we look into ways of integrating the future security system into the existing IT infrastructure or the existing building management system. Design and alarm management. The design of any security solution can be divided into three fundamental components: surveillance, operation and alarm. In close cooperation with the customer we specify exactly what shape and form intervention should take. Installation that doesn t interrupt your operations. After all this, the systems and components are installed. Security solutions often need to be integrated into buildings that are already in everyday use, where ongoing operations cannot be interrupted. Commissioning and test phase. After extensive testing and approval by the authorities or instructors, the system is put into operation. Instruction and ongoing training. The on-site training of your staff or in specially equipped training centers is one of the many services from Siemens that are setting standards for the rest of the industry. We train our customers staff on the job and ensure they remain on the ball with periodic follow-up seminars. Operation and connection to a central monitoring station (CMS). Ultimately, any all-round alarm concept has to be linked to a monitoring center. Your system will send all predefined alarms to our monitoring station, where qualified staff initiate the agreed intervention processes. Maintenance and -hour service. The maintenance of your security system is likewise handled by Siemens, whether onsite or remotely, via modem. We are here for our customers round the clock and all over the world. Analysis Design Solution Installation Commissioning Training Monitoring station Solutions and emergency power supply. The next step is to evaluate the systems and components, assess installation specialists, configure the systems and define the operation, alarm and intervention parameters. It is, of course, essential that the system and the control stations continue functioning on standby power in case of emergency. Security and outsourcing. If you want to focus completely on your core business and at the same time have all the benefits of a reliable security solution, your best option is to leave the entire operation and maintenance of your system to us. And if you wish to go a step further, we can also offer you attractive financing options. Innovative security solutions tailored exactly to your needs can be found on the following pages. Maintenance

7 Security in technology and in design. Our security solutions are configured by specialists who can look back on many years of international experience. All the systems and components can be adapted to the customer s individual requirements and upgraded at any time. The design is so discreet that the systems integrate perfectly with any style of architecture or building. Access control/time recording. An access control system manages and documents access to the building or specific floors, zones or rooms. These systems can also be linked to burglar alarms and video surveillance as well as time recording systems. Biometric systems. Depending on the level of security required, access control systems can be equipped with biometric data recognition for hand and fingerprints, face and iris. ID cards. Thanks to the sophisticated software, credit card-sized identification cards with or without photograph can be produced quickly and easily using a PC. Burglary alarm management. State-of-the-art infrared and ultrasonic detectors that are capable of distinguishing between harmless interferences and genuine intrusions reduce the number of false alarms. Genuine alarms are transferred directly to the monitoring center, which initiates any necessary intervention. Danger management system. This system manages and controls the entire security solution. It supplies a continuous stream of information about system status, alarms intervention personnel, opens or closes doors and evacuates staff. Notification of security staff. Security staff are guided automatically by radio, mobile phone or pager to the right place at the right time. Security on the move. The track-and-trace electronic security solution was designed for goods and merchandise in transit. Electronic systems installed in containers or vehicles protect them against unauthorized access, raise the alarm in case of intrusion and register every movement from the place of departure until arrival at the destination. IT security. Individual, complex and networked security concepts protect corporate IT systems against hacking, bugging, sabotage and industrial espionage. Communications security. Bug-proof satellite connections for intervention personnel or rescue teams of all kinds prevent any form of manipulation and guarantee safe, secure intervention at all times. And in case you would like to obtain access to our solutions, all you have to do is turn the page. Access control/ Time recording Biometric systems ID card production Burglary alarm management Video surveillance Danger management system Notification of security staff Mobile security Video surveillance. Video surveillance is not only a proven form of deterrence. Modern video surveillance systems set off alarm systems and can supply valuable information to intervention personnel in case of emergency.

13 Outsourcing security. If you want to improve the quality of your life and working environment and at the same time focus fully on your core operations, you are best advised to outsource the operation of your security solutions. No matter what the disturbance a burglar or fire alarm, a technical defect or an emergency call from an elevator the central monitoring stations from Siemens are on the alert round the clock. We react professionally to alarms and ensure that the agreed types of intervention are implemented swiftly and reliably. Outsource your security solution and you can rest assured not only that it is in very capable hands but also that it will relieve your security budget in terms of both personnel and investment. Upgrading and expanding a security solution. Our security systems can be updated at any time you wish. All our new products are compatible with the systems you have come to rely on and can be integrated into existing solutions at any time. Expanding your security solution is just as simple. Which means we are actively playing a part in protecting your investment. The reliability of your security solution. The ultimate test for any security solution is that all-decisive factor: reliability. And because a chain of systems and products is only as strong as its weakest link, we go to unusual lengths to eliminate the danger of false alarms. First, a well thought-out solution can help to minimize possible error sources from the project development stage. With our many years of experience and industry-related know-how, we can ensure that our systems are put to the best possible use. Second, our products feature maximum intelligent evaluation capacity, which enables them to distinguish between genuine intrusions and harmless but deceptively similar phenomena. Third, our sophisticated alarm systems ignore electromagnetic interferences as well as other sources of false alarms. Fourth, the fact that our systems are so user-friendly helps to minimize perhaps the most common source of problems, human error. And, fifth, at Siemens we only use nationally and internationally certified products. In certain countries we even offer a genuine alarm guarantee in the case of false alarms. In other words, we will cover the cost of preventive action in the event of a false alarm.* To find out what else we can offer you apart from our security systems and a fully comprehensive range of services, simply turn to the next page. * This guarantee is restricted to certain countries and product lines and is subject to special conditions.

15 Increasing security requirements call for far-sighted security concepts. As security risks continue to change, more and more companies are demanding comprehensive security concepts. Such solutions are increasingly being influenced by progress in the IT sector. The rapid pace of technological development in digital image processing, biometrics, data transmission and location technology now makes integrated solutions possible in which physical security and ITbased security are merged. A typical application featuring a fusion of these two elements is an access control system whose components communicate via the user s existing, secured network and which, where necessary, can be expanded to include other security functions such as video surveillance. In this area, the guidelines set out as part of Basel II and ISO 7799 are assuming increasing significance. These provide clear, professional instructions regarding implementation and integration. Security is more than a functioning system. Siemens research and development teams are constantly searching for ever newer technologies to protect people, objects and business operations. Thus, they continue to find solutions that others seek elsewhere in vain. Because solutions developed to protect against a certain risk are mostly based on a combination of different measures. If your burglary and robbery alarms, access control and video surveillance systems are designed, developed, produced, installed and serviced by the same company, and then monitored by our central control station, you can look forward to maximum benefits and convenience. Plus a far-sighted solution. Building Technologies from Siemens offers more than security. The key to success lies, firstly, in having an all-inclusive concept and, secondly, in the level of technological innovation found in the solutions. This way, security solutions can be perfectly combined with the fire alarm systems offers by Siemens. (For more details please request our special brochure: The safe, sure way to more innovative solutions: Fire protection systems from Siemens. ). But that is not all. When security and fire protection systems from Siemens are combined with Siemens building automation systems, the vision of an intelligent building soon becomes reality. (To find out more, read our special brochure, Total Building Solutions.) Siemens is more than Building Technologies. With so much innovation under one and the same roof, Siemens can offer even more functionality and provides solutions that go far beyond mere building technology. Siemens Power Transmission and Distribution, for instance, supplies the high-voltage lines that transmit and distribute electricity from power stations via substations to the mains sockets in individual rooms. Another division, Siemens Automation and Drives, supplies the control, management and process automation technology that comprise a building s actual brain, overseeing and coordinating its many different systems and components. Not to mention the IT, telephony and lighting solutions likewise offered by Siemens. Our customers can obtain all these products and services from a one-stop shop. And that s what we understand by understanding our customers needs. If you are looking for a state-of-the-art, customized solution to your specific needs, why not turn to the back cover. Where, as you will see, the right partner is almost literally just round the corner. ) International standard for data protection and IT risk management, which, among other things, defines standards for functional and system security in building technology and security. The standard is used to assess corporate creditworthiness. ) ISO Security Standards based on BS 7799 of the British Standards Institution.
